Featured Visiting Exhibit:
THERE'S JUST US
By Alec R. Hosterman, Ph.D.
July 18 – December 30, 2022
August 11 and 12, 2022, marks the five-year anniversary of the Unite the Right rally that rocked the quaint city of Charlottesville, Virginia, and brought it unwanted media attention from around the world.
When Longwood University communications studies professor Alec Hosterman began to photograph the first day of the Unite the Right rally, he thought the photos would be material he could integrate into classroom discussions.
Instead, he wound up documenting the violent, far-right extremist event that became international news. His collection of photos, “There’s Just Us,” are on display at VHM now through Dec. 30 at Virginia Holocaust Museum. Please come by the museum and view Hosterman's powerful work.

Pictures of Resistance: The Wartime Photography of Jewish Partisan Faye Schulman
January 9th - March 31st 2023
Faye Schulman, the only known Jewish partisan to document the World War II experience on film, wanted the world to know that the Jews did not go like sheep to the slaughter during World War II. Her rare images, collected during her nearly two years in the forests along the Russian-Polish border with the Molotava Brigade partisan group, will be spotlighted in the traveling exhibit Pictures of Resistance: The Wartime Photography of Jewish Partisan Faye Schulman.
